10 Books Outside of my Comfort Zone (That I Really Liked!) – #TopTenTuesday

10 Books Outside of my Comfort Zone (That I Really Liked!) – #TopTenTuesday

I have a pretty specific set of books I like to read: YA Fantasy.  Sometimes I will shift from one of these – Adult Fantasy! YA Contemporary!  But my favorite is still YA Fantasy.  However, shifting far enough out of this genre to get into something really different?  So rare.  A book really need to catch my attention.  In fact? Half the time, even if it does, I’ll add it to my TBR and when it gets to the front of the line, I’ll say “eh no”. But I keep adding these books because – you never know!  Sometimes, I really, really like […]

Seven Books on Preorder I’m Dying to Read – #TopTenTuesday

Seven Books on Preorder I’m Dying to Read – #TopTenTuesday

Good morning everybody and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday!  It’s been a few weeks since I participated in one of these!  I actually just moved my To Buy wishlists from Goodreads to Amazon and Thriftbooks wishlists, so I’ve been thinking about the things I want to add to my library! That said, rather than go into the books that I want to buy, I actually want to share the ones that I have on pre-order!  My “To Buy” lists are made up of books I’ve listened to on audiobook and want to get a hardcopy of.  Most of those, […]

10 Pieces of Swag I Loved from Subscription Boxes

10 Pieces of Swag I Loved from Subscription Boxes

I do a lot of unboxing on this blog and I talk about the items I do and don’t like.  I know this is nothing like this week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt, but I’ve been wanting to deviate for a while and make a little space on my blog for this post, because I enjoy calling out some of the great creators in the community! There are a lot of items I’ve used here and there, and a lot of things that have been fun.  I love all the candles, honestly – I’m always excited when a candle or a pin […]

Where are all the Tamora Pierce Fans At?  (+ My Ten Favorites) #TopTenTuesday

Where are all the Tamora Pierce Fans At? (+ My Ten Favorites) #TopTenTuesday

Did y’all know that I’m turning 30 this year?! For the record, 30 is a terrifying number.  You can sort of get away with a lot of indecision and childishness in your 20s, which is my zone.  By 30, generally speaking, you’re really expected to have your act together and behave in a socially acceptable way for an adult. I mention all this because I’m twisting today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt and using an author that is technically YA… but I started reading her books legit 17 years ago, so I feel like I can work with the umbrella of “childhood” […]

Books On My Summer 2019 TBR – #TopTenTuesday

Books On My Summer 2019 TBR – #TopTenTuesday

At the beginning of the year, I was really good about TBRs. I was using my Novel Companion and filling out the TBR page every month and coloring it in and everything.  Then I began packing and I moved and now I don’t even know where the Novel Companion is and TBRs stopped happening and everything is fine, I swear. I generally do okay without a TBR because I have a TBR Jar and I have ARCs and everything, but it is sorta nice to have it all laid out?  So while I don’t usually participate in the TBR posts… […]

Unpopular Bookish Opinions:  In Which I Discuss the Grishaverse, J.K. Rowling, and DNF-ing.

Unpopular Bookish Opinions: In Which I Discuss the Grishaverse, J.K. Rowling, and DNF-ing.

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post!  I know I haven’t been participating consistently in this meme, but this week, I couldn’t resist!  I think all of us bloggers have some solid opinions about what we do and don’t like, and sometimes it’s difficult to express those opinions for fear of backlash. But I am always one for a salty post… so I’m totally here for this.  Y’all ready?  I’ve got some unpopular bookish opinions for y’all. This may be one of my new favorite GIFs, by the way.  I’ve used it twice in the […]
